Step 1/4

Heat the sugar and water to 290°F. Turn the heat off and add the royal icing (dyed black). Pour the hot sugar into 2 lightly greased bowls and add a bowl on top to form the shells. Allow to cool.

Step 2/4

Make the chocolate cake by melting the butter and 7 oz of dark chocolate together in the microwave. Add the eggs then the flour and sugar. Divide the batter into 2 greased bowls (same size as the small sugar bowls). Bake the cakes for 30 minutes at 350°F.

Step 3/4

Heat the heavy cream and mix with the remaining dark chocolate. Add a pinch of salt. When the cakes have cooled place in the sugar shells. Add a thin layer of chocolate ganache and close the shells to create a sphere.

Step 4/4

Make the chocolate flag by piping lines of red chocolate. Cover with white chocolate and allow to set. Make a small square in blue chocolate and glue sugar stars on it. Stick the flag on a pocky stick and place the flag with the astronaut on the cake. Serve and enjoy!
